How many gay Americans are there? Less than 2%

Hat/Tip to CNS News. In 2011 Gallup conducted a survey, asking Americans to estimate how much of the population was homosexual. The results were surprising in that respondents thought that 1 in 4, or 25% of Americans were gay. Nothing could be farther from the truth, it seems. Contrary to popular belief, just 1.6 percent of American adults identify as homosexual, compared to 96.6 percent who say they are heterosexual, according to a large-scale, first-of-its-kind government survey recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2011, a Gallup survey found that 52 percent of Americans believed […]

Obama’s Legacy of Failure

The country’s chief narcissist, Barack Obama, has, of course, a very high opinion of himself as President of these United States. At one time or another, President Obama has compared himself favorably with Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Reagan. But, the Washington Examiner reports o the results of a YouGov/Economist survey of 1000 US adults interviewed October 26-28, 2013 on the greatness of Presidents. My guess is that Valerie Jarrett has made sure that Mr. Obama has and will never see the results of this poll. Polling highest in the category “Great” was Ronald Reagan with 32% followed by Franklin D. Roosevelt […]

Obama Can’t Win a Poll Where Democrats are Over-Sampled +11?

We’ve been covering the fact that pollsters, in their effort to shape opinion, rather than reflect it, have been oversampling Democrats to make it appear that Obama is ahead.  Da Tech Guy has been ahead of the crowd on this, so check out his place.  In the meantime, here is the latest poll to be fudged.  Gateway Pundit has the information… CNN reported: It’s all tied up, according to a new national poll released two days before the presidential election. And the CNN/ORC International survey not only indicates a dead heat in the race for the White House, but also on almost […]

November 7, 2012 _ Romney Wins By A Landslide!

In the interest of sanity, I felt compelled to find something up-lifting to write about today. In spite of the left stream Media’s consistent predictions of an Obama win in November, the reports of Romney’s political death are premature. I think it is not out of the realm of possibilities  that Mitt Romney will win by a landslide. A landslide to me would have Romney at 55%, Obama at 41%, and Gary Johnson at 4%. believe it or not, I have some support for being so optimistic. A dear commenter here at CoF left a link to this Business Insider article that […]

MSM, Leftists Predicting Doom for Romney: Don’t Fall for it

The MSM, and the left (or do I repeat myself?) are using the super secret campaign event video to tar Romney-for telling the truth, mind you-and are predicting doom and gloom for the campaign.  To summarize, I have the following statement… DON’T FALL FOR IT! To see through the nonsense, you have to consider a few facts… 1.  The MSM has been cooking the poll numbers for…well…forever.  If you need confirmation of that, consult Da Tech Guy, who has been on top of it.  In fact, if you want to know one poll more than any other, read this one.  […]

MSM Deathwatch: Faith in Media at an all Time Low

What happens when the MSM is continually caught telling lies, ignoring stories that everyone knows about, and basically making it up as they go along?  Well, people stop trusting them! And, that appears to be happening to our friends at the MSM.  Newsbusters has the details… America’s confidence in TV news has hit a new low, but should anyone be surprised? According to Gallup’s analysis  of their annual Confidence in Institutions survey , only 21 percent of Americans have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in TV news. Newspapers don’t fare much better with only 25 percent of respondents expressing confidence.  Gallup’s survey, which was […]

Will Gingrich Respond to National Review’s Call to Drop out and Endorse Santorum?

After surging in South Carolina,  Newt Gingrich crashed and burned in Florida, and shows no signs or recovering.  After several poor showings in a row, the vultures are circling over the dying campaign.  One influential source, The National Review, has called on him to drop out of the race, and lend his support to Rick Santorum.  Teresa, at Teresamerica, has more… Today the National Review has taken a bold move and requested that Gingrich drop out of the race and endorse Rick Santorum.  With Santorum’s rise in popularity and continued surge, and Gingrich’s implosion I think this is a good idea. […]

Useful Idiot of the Month Nomination Thread

With this short month, I almost forgot about Useful Idiot of the Month.   That would be a shame too, as there are an abundance of candidates.  Here are some of my ideas… James Clapper: Dur…teh Muslim Brudderhood is leik, secular and stuff. Jimmy Carter: Ditto Barak Obama: For all the left reasons. What are your ideas?  Drop your suggestions in the comment section.  I’ll leave nominations up for two days, then we’ll vote for the rest of the month. Even the left will like it.  It’s DEMOCRACY!!!

Polling Pointing to Democrat Debacle in November: Even CNN Showing Doom for Democrats

The news just keeps getting worse for the Democrats.  According to CNN, the Democrats are down 7% on a generic ballot to the GOP. According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday, the GOP leads the Democrats by 7 points on the “generic ballot” question, 52 percent to 45 percent. That 7-point advantage is up from a 3-point margin last month. The generic ballot question asks respondents if they would vote for a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district, without naming any specific candidates. “The survey indicates that independents and voters who dislike both parties are starting to […]

The Democrats are Falling Apart: Two Telling Polls-UPDATED

I saw two polls today that have HUGE implications for both the Democrats and Republicans.  Let’s take a look. First up, Hot Air has the link to this poll from NBC and the WSJ.  While it did sample more Democrats than Republicans, it could be harbinger of death for the Democrats. Underpinning the gloom: Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the economy has yet to hit bottom, a sharply higher percentage than the 53% who felt that way in January. So much for the “Summer of Recovery.”   When the propaganda is so separated from reality, the propaganda fails. As in recent […]

Support for ObamaCare Below 40%, According to Rasmussen

I had been following Gallup for polling data as of late, but this came up in searching today.   Here is the latest from Rasmussen. Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan. Half the survey was conducted before the Senate voted late Saturday to begin debate on its version of the legislation. Support for the plan was slightly […]
